ROSENTHAL, ERIC - South African Surnames

(Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1965). . Signed by the author on the title page. 8vo; original papered boards; dustwrapper; pp. 262. Dustwrapper slightly edgeworn; a little foxing to backstrip, edges and endpapers; earlier owner's name signed on front pastedown. Very good condition. "South Africa's versatile Eric Rosenthal has produced a book that is surely unique. Everyone is interested in his own name, where it came from, what it means and the answer is in this book. There are over 2,500 names of South Africans: English, Afrikaans, Jewish, Italian, Portuguese, Greek, French - settlers who have come from almost every part of the globe and their history is given in a fascinating manner... Many people will be interested in the evolution of Bantu, Coloured and Indian names. A long chapter is devoted to this angle. Altogether a book for everyone, a book to keep and hand down to one's children.".
